An honored film. A milestone in movie acting. A landmark in the fight against censorship. Winner of four Academy Awards®, an unprecedented three of them in the acting categories. A Streetcar Named Desire is all of these. And now it's even more.
A Streetcar Named Desire: the Original Director's Version is the Elia Kazan/Tennessee Williams film moviegoers would have seen had not Legion of Decency censorship occurred at the last minute. If features three minutes of previously excised footage underscoring, among other things, the sexual tension between Blanch Dubois (Leigh) and Stanley Kowalski (Brando), and Stella Kowalski's (Kim Hunter) passion for husband Stanley. "In 1951, you had to guess at a lot of things that are now made clear," Roger Ebert notes. Catch all of the classic that introduced a new era in filmmaking. This Streetcar is the one you've been waiting for.
